LOUD Hawaiian Shirt Contest and Luau

Aloha! Back by popular demand, it's the Energizers signature event . . . the LOUD Hawaiian Shirt Contest and Luau! The 2012 and 2013 events were huge successes, so we're hoping this year's luau will be even bigger and better.

Looking for something fun and colorful to do on a dreary, late winter day? Do you have a really bright, tropical shirt (or other garment) that borders on the obnoxious? Then come join the Energizers at a luau made just for you!

We will return to the John Wayne room of the Vintage Brewery for a party that is sure to chase away the messy March blues. Simply wear a Hawaiian shirt or other tropical garb. I only ask that you keep yourselves covered--no thongs or string bikinis, please! There will be a contest with fabulous prizes for:

1. The LOUDEST Hawaiian shirt

2. The most festive tropical ensemble

We will be dining on appetizers featuring pork sliders (or sandwiches), chicken, fresh fruit, and cheese. There is a suggested donation of about $5 - $10. Or. . .you are more than welcome to order your own appetizers or anything to eat off the menu. In the menu the Vintage has a fabulous fish sandwich for those who are really hungry. Cash bar will be available. Also, if you play a ukulele, bring it!

This event is also posted on the Madison Area Single Professionals meet-up. http://www.meetup.com/Madison-Area-Single-Professionals/events/151914542/

Below are a few photos from our last Hawaiian party if you need some ideas on what to wear.  We look forward to seeing you there.

    What a great night! A big thank you to everyone for your enthusiastic participation. There were some really loud shirts and festive tropical attire for certain. Congratulations to Dave D. for sporting the loudest Hawaiian shirt and to Dennis B. for most festive tropical attire. The coconuts did it for you , Dennis, and Dave, that was one ugly shirt! Great job, fellas and enjoy your restaurant gift certificates.

    Aloha! When you arrive at Vintage Brewing on Thursday evening, please proceed to the back room known as the John Wayne room. There, you will find a private cash bar and an appetizer buffet featuring fresh fruit, cheese & crackers, Italian meatballs, shrimp cocktail, pulled pork sliders, and beef sliders. Also, we'll have a contest to select the LOUDEST Hawaiian shirt and most festive tropical ensemble. The winners will receive $50 gift certificates to Madison Originals restaurants. Lastly, suggested donations of $5 to $10 per person are greatly appreciated to help offset the costs of this wonderful event. Lori and I are very much looking forward to seeing all of you. She will provide fabulous photography to capture every moment at its finest. See you soon!

      Jean, my guests tonight may not be able to make the fun event on Thursday evening due to not feeling too well under the weather um I'm sorry I wish we could make it um have a great time I don't want to get any one sick.

  • Jamie

    I may not be able to make it as one of my cats is currently in surgery and I don't yet know what the aftercare will entail. But I will try to keep my RSVP up-to-date as I learn/know more.
